To simulate a freight train approaching from a distance and then fade
off again, use a 4 beat hand clap with the first beat of each grouping of 4 loud
and then the following 3 softer beats. The
train can speed up, slow down, stop, and start with varying tempo. Throw in a
few train whistles for effect.
Move hand like a racer and go “ZZZRRrrroooooooommmmm” three times
Pretend you are driving a big rig.
Reach above your head for the horn cord and as you make a pulling motion
say loudly “Honk, Honk!”

Cub 1: Son, here are
the keys to my magic car.
Cub 2: Is it really
Cub 1: Yes, one
speeding ticket and it will disappear.

different train sounds, getting faster and faster until a bell rings.
